Boston regulators on Thursday approved construction of what will be the city’s tallest residential building, a 691-foot hotel and condominium tower that will rise at the edge of the Christian Science Plaza.

The 58-story building, to be situated at the corner of Belvidere and Dalton Streets, will add another major peak to the Back Bay skyline and bring thousands of new residents and visitors to one of the city’s most celebrated landmarks.

The 950,000 square foot development also includes a 25-story tower with 255 apartments; both new buildings will have retail and restaurant spaces. Construction is scheduled to start early next year. In total, the project will include 425 residences, 170 of which will be condominiums, and about 250 hotel rooms.
